Xavier’s feisty ex, Freya, has turned up in Summer Bay to reclaim her man. Ruby sees Xavier and Freya kissing, and realises how much of a threat this worldly temptress is. She tries to warn Freya off, but as Nicole puts it, Freya can run rings around Ruby. Ruby knows she can’t compete with this wild young thing.

Nicole, however, is quite taken by Freya and thinks she’s a breath of fresh air. While Nicole continues the struggle to make friends, she wonders if she’s finally met someone she connects with.

Hugo tells Xavier to get rid of Freya. Xavier says it’s not that easy as he has strong feelings for her. But does she only want him because she thinks she can’t have him? Later, Hugo arrives home to find Freya has let herself in to Martha’s house. He makes it clear she is unwelcome.

Unperturbed, Freya wonders if she went for the wrong brother and before Hugo knows it, Freya’s kissing him. At this moment, Xavier arrives and jealously charges at Hugo. Roman and Martha return from a picnic to a brawl – is this what Martha can expect after generously allowing Hugo and Xavier to live in her home?
